The VP14 LCD Controller is ideal for applications requiring a small form factor and resolutions up to 1920 x 1200. One input port is standard, and another port can be supported via an optional input mezzanine board.
Standard and custom video formats up to WUXGA
Converts a wide variety of video formats including RS-343 to LVDS, RS-170 to LCD, RGBHV to TTL, and custom video formats
Up to 2 input ports processed simultaneously
Up to (7) video connections on Port 1 support NTSC/PAL (composite and S-Video) and component. Optional Port 2 can be configured for DisplayPort, HD-SDI, or LVDS
Scaling, Windowing, and Area-of-Interest Control
Video area-of-interest control, resizing, retiming, and reformatting
Single or Dual LVDS up to 165 MPixels/sec
Single or Dual LVDS (up to 165MPixel/sec) at 10 bits/color. Supports parallel video out up to 165 MPixels/sec
Simulated cockpit displays
Configurable video electronics for simulated cockpit displays
Ruggedized tactical displays
LCD controller for ruggedized tactical displays
With its low-profile design and locking high-density Hirose connectors, the VP7 is ideal for space-constrained displays
Custom display solutions
Perfect for applications that require a configurable lcd controller
Powerful Configuration Utility
The VP14 is configured via a utility that supports in-the-field firmware, FPGA and parameter (BIOS) updates. The VP14 can be dynamically controlled over RS232, USB, or Ethernet with parameters stored in non-volatile memory to retain desired settings. Commands support a multi-mode approach to define:
- A prioritized list of all applicable video input modes that can be automatically detected
- Mode-independent parameters, such as scaled (output) area-of-interest and location within output resolution
- Synchronization method
- Sequences for power up, loss of video and video detection
Optimized for Embedded Applications
With its low-profile design and locking high-density Hirose connectors, the VP14 is ideal for space-constrained displays. The remote interface allows easy updates even after the VP14 is installed in your display.
- Supports most single and dual LVDS panels
- Supports LDI and SPWG LVDS bit mappings
- Parallel output for lower resolution and specialty displays
Supports Standard and Custom Video
Port 1 accepts video from one of many possible video inputs, including: an RGB input, a DVI input, or one of five possible NTSC/PAL composite inputs (or one of four possible S-Video inputs, or one of three possible component inputs). This port also supports specialty formats such as RS-343, RS-170, and STANAG. The VP14 can also be programmed to support custom video formats.
Scaling, Windowing, and Area-of-Interest Control
- Independent horizontal and vertical scaling
- Programmable input area-of-interest is mapped to user-defined area within the output resolution
- Optional PIP feature with port 2 mezzanine enabled
Rotate video, flip left to right or top to bottom
The VP14 supports video rotation (in 90 degree increments) for applications with sideways mounted displays, cameras, or other video sources. Video can also be flipped from top to bottom or left to right for specialty applications.
Automatic Video Input Mode Detection
Modes define both the electrical form (RGB, DVI, etc) and the timing of a video input. With fully customizable input mode definitions for each video input port, programmable panel power sequences, full control of window size and location within the output area-of-interest, and programmable output timing parameters, you can configure the VP14 for your application.
- Each video input port can be configured with multiple modes per electrical format (such as VGA, SVGA, XGA, WXGA modes on the RGB interface).
- When a given electrical format is selected, such as RGB, the VP14 can automatically detect the pre-programmed, prioritized input modes and convert the modes to a desired output mode.
- If valid video is not detected per that mode definition, the VP14 can be programmed to drive a specific flood field.
